shown he will groom and/or lure his victims, police said.
[He] will be monitored by the Edmonton Parole Oce and is under a number of
restrictions including not having any kind of contact with a person under the age of
, to not be within  metres of the perimeter of places where children under the
age of  are likely to congregate and not to use the internet to access any social
media sites.
is is not the rst time the EPS has issued a warning about him. According

September .
Both times police warned that he posed signicant risk to the community.
In Monday’s release, police warned the public this information was being
